The Donmar Warehouse is renowned as one of the UK’s leading producing theatres, with an international reputation for artistic excellence, winning over 100 major awards during its 24-year history. Led by Artistic Director Josie Rourke and Executive Producer Kate Pakenham, this 252-seat not-for-profit theatre, based in Covent Garden in the heart of London’s West End, seeks to shine a new light on classics and Shakespeare, present innovative revivals of contemporary British, Irish and American drama, and bring the best new writing to its stage. It is committed to producing work in direct conversation with our society and provoking dialogues relevant to today’s world and contemporary audiences.

The Donmar has a mission to extend its reach and broaden its audience as widely as possible, regularly taking its productions into the West End, to New York and beyond. Through live cinema and television broadcast, the Donmar is committed to seizing the opportunity modern technology offers to reach as wide an audience as possible. In 2015 alone, in addition to the 90,000 people who saw productions in the Donmar theatre, another 750,000+ people experienced a Donmar production beyond the walls of the Donmar itself.

The Donmar believes in the power of theatre to change lives and empower young people. Our extensive education programme works with schools and communities across London and beyond, fostering a new generation of theatregoers.

  • Great little theatre that brings you really close to the action. Reasonable seat prices but bar drinks expensive. Happy, friendly staff and top line actors. Plays are sometimes challenging but always worth a visit.
